500 point Guard Assualt Force

Post by Lone_Pathfinder on Wed Jan 05, 2011 6:59 pm

This is an anti-dark eldar list I've just pulled together. Originally designed for tyrannic/ork horde army but should work well against any mass troop opponent.

Company Command Squad
W/ power fist & 3 flamers

Platoon Command Squad
W/ 3 flamers

Infantry Squad Eradicus
W/ flamer

Infantry Squad Exterminus
W/ flamer

Veteran Squad Annilihus
W/ 3 flamers

Chimera Transport
W/ 2 heavy flamers

Scout Sentinal Squadron (3)
W/ 3 heavy flamers

So all in all, 11 flamers and 5 heavy flamers. Fun stuff!
Any dark eldar or horde army players, feel free to tell me how you would tear this army to shreds in the first couple of turns, any feedback is appreciated.

I'd hide in cover for the first part. I know what you're going to say, ignores cover. Yeah, lasguns don't. When you get within 6", I'd open fire with splinter cannons. Failing that, you don't have that much anti-tank. Raiders and the like would cause some damage.

Some good points, but it's not really the lasguns which will do the damage, it's the flamers, and heavy flamers will still be able to pen the raiders, and the company commander can fist it (if he ever catches up!) really in 500 points I was hoping no one else would have much tank for me to anti, but I guess raiders are pretty cheap now. Maybe a missile launcher battery would do the trick Smile

That it would Smile I'd probably do the same as ever - sprint across the field and rip you to bits with an Archon.

My only chance in combat is from a s6 power fist, and with only 4 other men in the unit his survival before striking chances are low. And heavy flamers aren't gonna be enough to take him down I don't think :S you can tell my list doesn't really take hq or elites into consideration. Out of interest, if you have a 500 point DE list drawn up from the new codex could you post it on here?

Far too lazy to use the new codex. I got scans months ago, as most of /tg/ did, didn't like them enough.

Fair do's, so you stick with the DE you've got or do you play another race too?

I don't play 40k so much any more (read: never) - last game I had was ages ago, and even then it was planned rather than spontaneous. Basically, I started looking at other rule systems and couldn't find a single point that 40k won on convincingly. I like skirmish games, and I like mass blocks of troops. For blocks, I have Bladecaster, which is pretty much finished (well, four races are), for skirmish, I have infinity.

Couple of changes I'd make to 40k that would get me back into playing, is that I'd bring back cityfight, make sure the rules for jumping and climbing were actually good, and allow teams of 20 odd a side. I'd also make snipers good again. Basically, a decent team based cityfighting game. Because I love them. But even then, I'd think "infinity's system is just as good as this improvement, less expensive (per army, not per model), and the fluff is less retarded."

But yeah, I got some DH and Guard too.

Fair enough! I know what you mean, but my response was to make my own fluff up (more expensive solution than swapping to infinity I'm sure)
If your guard are in good condition and you don't need them anymore, would you fancy selling them? I'd happily take them off your hands!

Well I don't know how i'd take the carnifex, but those tarot cards are getting more accurate (or you are good at research!) still fancy the game or shall I bring the marines instead?

I'll sell some guard, sure. Probably at a small amount below cost. They're secondhand, of course, but I paid through the nose to get them painted. They are cool though. Please at least leave some in the colours they are, maybe as a penal legion? Got a shadowsword which I may or may not sell.
